This is a new anthology of stories and poems that re-envision the myths, traditions and lived reality of 'Pacific-ness.' The voices in some of the poems and stories are marked with sorrow - for children who have moved away, for parents who never quite managed to fit in, for the ongoing effects of colonisation and globalisation. But there is also a thread of humor running through the works, and a joyful sense of what it is to be alive, and part of a larger whole. Together, these poems and stories present a portrait of a vivid, vital, loved, lived-in, taken-for-granted, passionately protected region: of a home; of the backdrop to a story; of a region that is as much a character as a setting.
